You manage CHARM, a non-profit charity that provides education and support to underprivileged children despite being a busy hands on mom. How do you manage this and take out time for working towards a better future for these kids?
I was raised by my widowed mom in a home with five children. Living a life with humble begins, we were thankful for all that we did have and even learned to give to others. She led by example volunteering to help families, mothers, and children which left an indelible imprint on my life. In high school, I competed in pageants with a platform to reach out to children in need so I started my charity called CHARM Children are magical. I continued this platform into college and focused on at risk students to help keep them in school. As Miss New York USA, I was able to expand Charm Foundation to partner with various other organizations such a NAMI, Anti-Bullying campaigns, Susan G Komen. We recently had our annual Back to school Bash in Nashville. As for my children, they are in the forefront attending, organizing and meeting other children as Charm ambassadors and they love it. I dedicated Charm Foundation to my mom who instilled in me such values and morals.
Being a fit mom, share 5 health tips for children of today to prevent obesity?
The biggest tip that comes immediately to my mind for children is activity, body motion, and avoid junk food!
We need to get our kids off of iPods, iPad, phones laptops, X-box, Playstation’s and spend more time out doors.
Walking, swimming, jump rope, running or hiking, are all great ways to keep bodies in motion. The YMCA has great after school programs, there are community playgrounds, and many after school activities which are all good tips to get the kids outdoors and spend less time in front of the screens and electronics.
